Free eye clinic and health fair Saturday in Sacramento

A free clinic Saturday for uninsured people in Sacramento offers no-cost eye examinations and, if needed, free prescription eyeglasses.

For walk-in clients, the clinic will be open from 8 a.m. to noon. Appointments will be made until 4 p.m.

The event is a collaboration among VSP, which will provide its vision care mobile clinic, and public officials.

Sacramento Assemblyman Richard Pan and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg and Sacramento City Council member Bonnie Pannell will be on hand to host the health fair and answer questions from the public.

The Community Health and Wellness Fair, held at the Florin Arts & Business Complex, 2251 Florin Road, will also feature free medical screenings, back-to-school backpacks and cooking demonstrations by local high school students.
